Plug fd leak from pipe()

Ok, the issue is easily reproducable with just file(1) itself, any .zip file
seems to do and run "valgrind --track-fds=yes file -z <zipfile>". 

For example:
[pmatilai at localhost ~]$ valgrind --track-fds=yes file -z

The attached one-liner seems to be sufficient to fix, but check by yourself,
I'm recovering from a nasty stomach flu and not feeling exactly bright and
sharp atm...
